Baby on Board!

I love this sweet little car and I was amazed when I got the tiny license plate words placed exactly right the first time!

baby car PTI SFYTT

I used a colour combo chosen by Heather on the PTI blog today as part of their anniversary festivities. Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, Kraft and Cream. I shaded the car with Copics, for the bumper, tires and some areas that would have shadows. I used Antique Linen Distress Stickles for the headlights.

I used this month’s SFYTT for the layout though I’ll admit, I stretched it a bit, turning it 90 degrees for starters.Then I used the bow for one of the ‘circles’ and the buttons for the others. And I used a doily instead of the panel behind the white circle. While it doesn’t look quite like the original, I do hope they see the inspiration I took from it.
